About the rental car: there is absolutely no reason to get a rental car in Le Mans. My thinking went something like this: “We’ll get a car, drive to the museum, which is a bit out of town, as is our apartment, then drive the course.” Wrong on both accounts . Everything, and I do mean everything, is connected by tram. Sure, we drove the course, but it wasn’t worth the cost of a one day rental. We parked the car at the house and took the tram! €1.50 each for one ride!
